In order for us to be a true Democracy the government must be “of the people, by the people, for the people," as President Lincoln once said. But in practice that is not how it works when people don’t express themselves through the one power democracy gives them—the VOTE. Instead of expressing their views at the polls, supporting candidates that represent their values and needs, too many citizens crowd together like sheep without a shepherd and bleat pointlessly—“there’s nothing we can do.”

Get Out the Vote, AIGA’s civic engagement initiative, part of Design for Democracy.
